Tacoma ,Wa. new member

I am very new to Rangers and offroading but I am not new to Fords ('88 347ci hatch) or cool toys('02 VW GTI & '06 ZX14).Traffic and law enforcement have taken most of the fun out of street racing so an alternative outlet for our lust for mechanical oneupmanship was needed so 3 of us at work decided to try WHEELIN' ,they got a cherokee and a nissan p/u -I bought a $400.00 1986 4cyl ranger-about an hour ago! This is going to be a REAL LOW dollar effort -lots of junkyard stuff ! So thanks for having me and I will post some pics on the 16th .

Welcome to R/F.

You hit the weak trails out behind the plastic plant off of 56th and Tyler?

I cleared the motoX double in an 86 Celebrity once. Fun place to bomb around if ya get bored.

If you want another person to come watch/film/laugh I'll come down. The only entrance there now is the street right before the railroad crossing if your driving down 56th street toward South Tacoma way. Turn left and go to the end, you should be able to just drive right in. Cops don't care about off-roading down there. Just dont do any dumping.
